Desert View Middle & High School

Summary:

Desert View Middle & High School is a public charter school serving 191 students in grades 6-12 in Yuma, Arizona. The student body is predominantly Hispanic (79.06%), with smaller percentages of White (15.18%), Asian (3.14%), and multiracial (2.09%) students.

The school's academic performance has been mixed, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics generally on par with or slightly higher than state and district averages, but with some exceptions, such as 8th-grade Math proficiency being significantly lower than the state average. The school's graduation rate has fluctuated significantly, ranging from a low of 52.9% in 2017-2018 to a high of 94.7% in 2018-2019, and its dropout rate has also varied. In terms of student group performance, the school has performed relatively well for special education and low socioeconomic status students, but below average for female, Hispanic, and White students.

Compared to nearby schools like Kofa High School, Cibola High School, and Educational Opportunity Center, Desert View Middle & High School generally performs better academically, but its graduation and dropout rates have been more volatile. The school's predominantly Hispanic student population and the challenges it faces in addressing the needs of its diverse student body suggest that further analysis and targeted interventions may be necessary to improve overall performance and ensure equitable outcomes for all students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

Open Quote The Carpe Diem model is ideal for students who excel in academics, have difficulty relating to peers in a traditional setting, or just need a smaller school environment. Unfortunately, CD is building a reputation of becoming 'THE' school for students who are failing other local schools. This adversely effects the overall productivity and performance for both students and teachers. Consider carefully if your child can work independently at a rigorous pace in the midst of chaos and bad behavior. Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
